United, City & Arsenal want my son - Fabinho's dad

United, City & Arsenal want my son - Fabinho's dad

Manchester United, Manchester City, Arsenal and Barcelona have all been in contact with Monaco defender Fabinho, according to his father.

During the last summer transfer, the 24-year-old French footballer was a target for Arsenal and he has established himself as one of France's best defenders.

However, Fabinho's father has now indicated that the Brazilian may yet head to the Premier League after confirming that as many as three clubs in England are interested.

Joao Roberto Tavares named Arsenal and Man Utd as being among the clubs that have make their interest known but he suggests that Fabinho may favour a move to Man City.

Fabinho began his career at Portuguese club Rio Ave before loan spells at Madrid and Monaco, but made his move permanent to the Ligue 1 club in 2015.

"We like Manchester United and the work of Mourinho, but we have a little soft spot for City".

Fabinho is considered a versatile player, having played in central midfield and at right back for Monaco this season, and has also managed to get himself on the score sheet seven times in the process. He spent his first season playing predominantly as a right-back, though he was utilised as a defensive midfielder.
